Notion Ink confirms its next tablet CPU choice

Notion Ink in a update early Saturday Bangalore time uncovered one of the first details of next-generation tablet. Referring to the slate as the Adam II, it plans to use a TI OMAP 4400-series multi-core processor mated with Android 4.0. What clock speed and which exact graphics core weren't mentioned, apart from the video coming through a PowerVR SGX500-series core.

The OS itself would have a new structure, a Modular Based Software Architecture, which would let users customize apps through a drag-and-drop system. The extensions would let users access "every single hardware feature," Notion Ink said.

Nothing has been said so far of when the Adam II is supposed to ship. Notion Ink has already said it plans to design many more of the parts in-house rather than outsource them. The original Adam suffered teething problems that hurt its reputation at a time when it was just getting started.
